Part forming question

I am working on a part where the customer is supplying us with some blank

plates 24" square. They want us to put a 4" bent leg on the part.

What I need to know is, in Inventor, how do I go about this?

I have done this in SW, but can not figure out how in Inventor.

Thank you very much for  your help.

The bend faeture works pretty well for simple bends.

But as JD said, more complex parts work better by modeling.

Or go into the Sheet Metal environment.

Bend Part (hidden command).

But I would probably model as-bent.
